A spokesperson for Minnesota-based Target said in an email that the vote indicated employees' confidence in Target as a company.
"This weekend's outcome confirms Target's longstanding belief that a culture of mutual respect, in which we listen to our team and resolve issues directly, will always be better for our team members than relying on a union intermediary," the statement read. "We deeply value our store team in Huntington Station and want to thank them for their confidence in Target."
